My soul is weary1 of my life; I will leave4 my complaint upon myself; I will speak17 in the bitterness of my soul.
I will say4 unto God, Do not condemn55 me; shew54 me wherefore thou contendest4 with me.
[Is it] good1 unto thee that thou shouldest oppress,4 that thou shouldest despise4 the work of thine hands, and shine52 upon the counsel of the wicked?
Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest4 thou as man seeth?2
[Are] thy days as the days of man? [are] thy years as man's days,
That thou enquirest17 after mine iniquity, and searchest4 after my sin?
Thou knowest that I am not wicked;4 and [there is] none that can deliver56 out of thine hand.
Thine hands have made14 me and fashioned4 me together round about; yet thou dost destroy17 me.
Remember,3 I beseech thee, that thou hast made1 me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?55
Hast thou not poured me out55 as milk, and curdled55 me like cheese?
Thou hast clothed55 me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced34 me with bones and sinews.
Thou hast granted1 me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved1 my spirit.
And these [things] hast thou hid1 in thine heart: I know1 that this [is] with thee.
If I sin,1 then thou markest1 me, and thou wilt not acquit17 me from mine iniquity.
If I be wicked,1 woe unto me; and [if] I be righteous,1 [yet] will I not lift up4 my head. [I am] full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction;
For it increaseth.4 Thou huntest4 me as a fierce lion: and again4 thou shewest thyself marvellous101 upon me.
Thou renewest17 thy witnesses against me, and increasest55 thine indignation upon me; changes and war [are] against me.
Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth52 out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost,4 and no eye had seen4 me!
I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried93 from the womb to the grave.
[Are] not my days few? cease3 2308 4 [then, and] let3 7896 4 me alone, that I may take comfort55 a little,
Before I go4 [whence] I shall not return,4 [even] to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;
A land of darkness, as darkness [itself; and] of the shadow of death, without any order, and [where] the light55 [is] as darkness.
